Haunt Against Hunger is a positive community awareness event that brings attention to needy and hungry families as we approach the year’s end and the holiday season. In years past, the event has been a successful tool in helping fill the local food pantry’s shelves located at our own United Methodist Church at 7100 W. 112th Street.

The event is organized by Officer Anthony Ritz of the Worth Police Department and Webmaster for the Village of Worth. eMail me

Our Event Sponsors

We begin at the Village Hall where we collect our donated food and have an encounter with The Reaper! Then the Worth Police Department and Hearses from the LasRydes Antique Hearse Club escort us for a haunted walk around our best decorated yard haunts and haunted residences. Afterwards we will finish at the Worth Methodist Church for snacks and refreshments. Participants will be invited to attend the Worth Park District’s Nightmare at the Terrace Haunted House with a special discount coupon.

The event’s goal is to raise awareness and donations for the Food Pantry. The Food Pantry is located at the Worth Methodist Church at 7100 W. 112th Street. Food donations may be brought to this event or dropped off prior in the Village Hall or Police Station. We do not collect food door to door during our walk. To arrange a food donation
please email Officer Ritz.

We are primarily looking to accept canned or nonperishable foods like macaroni and cheese, tuna, peanut butter and cereal. For the holidays, the pantry is requesting items for Thanksgiving and Christmas such as side dishes, stuffing mixes, mashed potatoes, jellos, sweet potatoes, cranberries, gravy, cake mixes and frostings. This year we are also collecting donations of pet food! If it is raining heavy at the time of our event, we are moving all activities to the Worth Methodist Church located at 7100 W. 112th Street.
